( 401 ) XIV. Descriptions of Jive new species, and a new genus, of Diurnal Lepidoptera, from Shanghai. By A. G. Butler, F.L.S., &c. [Read 5th June, 1871.] The species here described were recently sent home by Mr. W. B. Pryer. They are very interesting ; one of them being a representative of an exclusively New World group of butterflies, and another very similar to a common British Argynnis ; in the same Collection is a curious little Terias, which I believe to be the T. mandarimis of De L'Orza; it may, however be new, since I have not recently had an opportunity of consulting his description. Earn. NYMPHALID^. Sub.-fam. SATYEIN^, Bates. Pal^onympha, gen. n. Affinissimum Euptychice (Sect. Neonympha) diflfert alis dense pilosis ; anticis striga lata, opaca, masculina, obli-qua ; angulo antico cellulae discoidalis haud porrecto ; palpis articulo ultimo longiore. Nearly allied to Euptychia, which it much resembles in markings, but with the oblique male streak (not pre-sent in any \uo\m.Euptyclvia, but represented in E. vesta by a scalloped embossed line) ; the anterior angle of the discoidal cell obliquely cut ofi*, and therefore not project-ing as in E^lptych^a ; the palpi "wath the last joint longer, the wings clothed above with long hairs ; it differs from Paramecera (Mexico), with which it agrees in the last-mentioned character, and in the oblique male streak, in the different form of the front-wing cell, the shape and marking of the wings, and the length of the palpi. Typical species Pal^sgnympha opalina. Palceonympha opalina, sp. n. Alas supra fuscse, anticae ocello uno apicali albo-pupil-lato lineisque duabus marginalibus, nigris ; posticaa ocellis quatuor nigris ; prime apicali indistincto, secundo parvo inconspicuo, tertio magno, distincto, bipupillato.
